The singer may be his wife Kate. According to Wikipedia, they were married in 1934 and performed together until 1939. The sound quality seems more like that period than the late 1920s.

This is one impressive little recording. The record it came from is a bit scratchy, but since you need only listen to this once (and never forget it), it does not matter. Really cool find, Archive!
